Unique and numbered piece designed and produced by Ariane Prin in her workshop in London. Creating new form and utility from often overlooked waste material, each piece showcases a unique color and texture that changes gradually over time. It contains metal particles collected from metal workshops across London, such as shavings from keys, mixed with a base of gypsum and acrylic. The oxidization of the metals gives each piece its unique colors.
Because the pots are not coated or varnished, their texture may change slowly over time; they are, however, strong and durable.
Approximately 4 inches diameter, 4 inch height
